WHAT IS FORESTRY MULCHING?
Forestry mulching is an efficient one-machine, one-operator method of land-clearing that removes unwanted trees, brush, and vines. The equipment grinds down the cleared vegetation on the spot and leaves behind a fine layer of mulch that can be immediately driven over or seeded. The mulch reintroduces nutrients back into the soil, provides effective erosion control and protects the top soil, making it functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. Property owners, realtors, and contractors alike are pleased to learn that forestry mulching can be done year round and usually without requiring a permit. When the job is done, all that is left behind is a layer of natural mulch that is environmentally friendly and pleasing to the eye.
Forestry mulching leaves the soil intact, eliminates the need for burning, hauling and disposing of debris, and minimizes soil erosion and run off problems associated with conventional land clearing methods making it an ideal option for a wide variety of land clearing jobs.
FORESTRY MULCHING SAVES TIME AND MONEY!
Forestry mulching is also more cost effective than clearing land by chainsaw and tractor or bulldozer and hauler. Hand-cutting and hauling have a low equipment cost but are insufficient for this job. Using a bulldozer and hauler may be more efficient but at a much higher cost. Forestry mulching’s one-machine, one-operator method uses less fuel and has low equipment and operator cost as well as a level of efficiency with which the other methods cannot compete. Forestry mulchers also eliminate many of the time-consuming steps involved in land clearing by processing trees and other vegetation right where they stand.
THE SMART CHOICE IN A VARIETY OF ENVIRONMENTS!
Forestry mulching is a good choice for a variety of environments. In rural areas it can be used to clear and maintain access roads or regain control of encroaching brush, making it easier to access fence lines and field perimeters. For commercial properties, forestry mulching can transform your grounds into a park-like oasis, increasing your curb appeal and property value. Forestry mulching is also a great choice for government properties, maintaining state and federal building grounds, parks and campgrounds as well as efficiently managing storm damage clean-up.

Forestry Mulching has quickly become the fastest, easiest & most cost effective way to clear land by far. In most cases the need to remove the entire root system of the tree is just not necessary. By mulching the trees and vegetation where they stand and leaving the root system in place, it greatly reduces the risk of soil erosion and impact on the surrounding environment. This is important because the soil is the foundation for anything you are going to do to the land whether building, seeding or planting.The mulched material can be left on the ground and will act as an erosion barrier while returning nutrients back into the soil through decomposition. This type of land clearing also eliminates many other steps involved in land clearing such as site prep, cutting/felling/hauling, and site cleanup. Forestry mulching eliminates the need for other heavier duty equipment which reduces emissions and cost for the consumer. All in all forestry mulching saves the consumer money and time.
Anytime is a good time for forestry mulching and reclaiming your land. We work in all seasons. In the winter and spring when the foliage and leaves have fallen our visibility is clearer. This makes it a little easier on us as we can see what is on the ground. However, it doesn't have an effect on our ability to forestry mulch in any season.
The land can be used immediately. There are no large holes or mess left behind like other land clearing methods.
